Introducing Cossa, a GTK+ theme previewer for gedit

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

Earlier today I’ve pushed gedit-cossa, a plugin for gedit to help writing CSS for GTK+ themes, it is able to display a number of samples, loaded from GtkBuilder files.

Here’s a video demonstrating how it works:

Cossa is still in pretty early development stages, immediate plans include:

  • Hooking CSS parsing errors to the gedit view
  • Adding a lot more samples, these should range from simple examples (basic widgets in different states) to complex (basic main window sample, preferences dialogs, …)

Anyone is welcome to help, specially in the second point, as it is fairly straightforward to add new samples.
